Browsing around the boards, I have noticed the word "dilemma" being misused quite a lot, so I'd like to clear something up. Now when somebody has a problem, they might say they have a dilemma. It is true that a dilemma is a problem, but that is not its true definition. A situation is a dilemma if no solution totally solves the problem or with every outcome there is some down side. Example of a dilemma: your arm is wedged inbetween two rocks. There are two solutions; cutting your arm off and setting yourself free, or leaving your arm unharmed and starving to death. That is a dilemma because each solution has a down side. Not having enough money to buy something you want would just be an example of a problem, not a dilemma. Thank you for bearing with me through this little lesson in English.
